About the founder

In 1988, Dr. Kiran Martin – a middle-class graduate from Delhi University – had set foot in a slum for the first time, to treat victims of a cholera outbreak. In the 25 years since that first intervention, Asha has established healthcare on the doorstep of over fifty slum communities.
